Crowborough ladies’ choir calls for fun-loving singers

PLATINUM FUN Choir members celebrating last year’s Jubilee

A CROWBOROUGH-based female voice choir is looking for members as they enter the New Year ready to raise money for charity.

The ‘Singing for Fun’ choir sing a variety of music, from Bizet to Bernstein and Lloyd Webber to Vaughan Williams, together with Fauré, Tchaikovsky, Karl Jenkins and John Rutter.

The ladies sing in two, three or four parts, performing some music a cappella, while other pieces are accompanied by pianist Mike Aston.

Solo parts are also available for the brave.

Although Singing for Fun holds two charity concerts a year at the United Church in Croft Road, Crowborough, they are sometimes asked to sing at other events, such as weddings and funerals, and have even sung at a hen party.

Events Co-ordinator Rosemary Wilson said: “It’s not all work, either, as we have a social get together at the beginning of the summer break and a Christmas meal in January, as it is too busy in December.

“Last year’s theme was ‘Platinum Jubilee’. There was a prize for the best outfit, lots to eat, and the lovely surroundings of a local garden.”

“We don’t hold auditions and the ability to read music is not a requirement as the husband of one of our members painstakingly puts all the parts of all our songs on our website so you just download and listen,” explained Ms Wilson.

The choir meets on Monday evenings in the United Church, gathering at 7:15pm and rehearsing from 7:30pm to 9pm.
